Cleaning Up after the Floods

ROSE CREEK, MN — Folks in Minnesota are cleaning up today.

In Mower County, towns such as Le Roy, Taopi, Adams and Rose Creek were among those hit the hardest.

Officials say there doesn’t appear to be any structural damage from the flooding.

However, roads throughout the county were washed out, while areas of Highway 56 had to be closed.

“You can see where the corn stocks from last year have hit certain areas on fences and the roads,” Mower County Emergency Management Coordinator Amy Lammey said. “You can see where the water went through. But, like I said, it is basically road damage. So, people need to be careful when they are going over roads.”

In Austin, Dreisner Park and parts of Marcusen Park were flooded, and some parts of Oakland Avenue also had to be blocked off because of the rain.
